    4 comps or 2 comp and / 2 6x9?

    I'm wondering what would be more ideal, to have comps in front and 6x9's in rear or all of the same speakere. I have an 01 civic so I need to see how deep i can make the front to be with some MDF. I won't be running a sub all the time so I thought some 6x9's might be able to help with some bass. I know they have 6x9 adapters for comps.

    I have always been confused because of varying RMS rating on different speakers. I was thinking of picking up a 100 x 4 rms amp and running jbl power comps/6x9's. Do different rms's from front to back matter?

    I'm a huge newb so if you have recommendations ( rainbows seem to be pretty popular ) for speakers feel free to say em. Thanks

    Spend the same budget but just on comps for the front. Rear speakers in a car that small are ridiculously unnecessary and won't do anything good for you at all.

    I think the last 7 or 8 posts I've seen of yours are all telling somebody to ditch their rear speakers and spend it on the front.

    Ditch the rear speakers. Spend the money on good comps for the front.

    That's because it's great advice.

    It is good advice, but its not the only advice As you can tell, I'm a fan of rear fill. I tried running only a front stage a few times and I just don't like it

    Some will, some won't. Comes down to personal preference. But hey, at least you tried it first.

    I have never met anyone that prefers rear fill after hearing a properly setup vehicle. Everyone so far that has disagreed changes their tune after hearing what a real stage sounds like.
